I am always on the lookout for creative seating! Whenever we have a large group at our home I feel like there just isn't enough places for people to sit. I love getting creative with benches, ottomans and even storage cubes! :) When I spotted these folding chairs at the thrift store for $6 a piece I knew they were meant for me.......they just needed a serious makeover!
Here is my pretty pair of folding chairs all dolled up:
and here is the before:
Pretty gross, right?!? My boys were selling lemonade and grabbed these chairs from the garage.....I was so embarrased that they were using them like this! I know I'm weird! :)
Here is what I mean by being creative with your seating.......
For most of us, it isn't in the budget or spatially possible to have couches everywhere. We have to make use with what we have. By being creative and thinking outside the box a bit I've added to our seating options.
For instance, by covering this coffee table with fabric to use as a bench it works as extra seating when we need it and also works in my everyday decor.
My new folding chairs aren't taking up much room and can be stored away when we don't need them! I also decided to cover them in an outdoor fabric so they can be used indoors or out and can easily be cleaned....always a bonus!
I've already used them outside on my front porch to decorate for Fall! You can read more about that HERE.
So, how do you get creative with your seating?
